Support and Stabilization
Providing in-home services designed to promote self-sufficiency
Family Alliance is a Family Stabilization Team which consists of licensed clinicians and case managers who work with families that are currently involved with the Department of Children and Families. The team works collaboratively with families who are intact and those with a goal of reunification to stabilize, strengthen, and build relationships with community providers, family, peers, and school. Our clinician and case manager conduct home visits up to three times a week, to provide the tools for families to stabilize and work towards their goals and treatment plans.
Referrals are only received from The Department of Children and Families/ Family Networks. A social worker can make a referral to the Family Alliance Program on behalf of a family with an open DCF case.
In-person visits are held in the home and community. We also offer hybrid and virtual visits over zoom or other platforms.
Hours of Services
Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Hours do vary based on the needs of families. The team is available by phone to families after hours and weekends if there is an emergency.
Duration of service
The service is designed to be 90 days. Families may receive an extension if the outlined goals of the service have not been met and approval has been received from DCF/Family Networks.
English and Spanish
The Family Alliance Team currently takes referrals from the Cape Ann (Salem), Harbor and Lynn DCF offices.
All services are designed with the 6 Child Welfare Core Practice Values in mind:
- Committed to Diversity and Cultural Competence
